Summary: I can't write a very informative review because I love these so much. The sound quality is great and they're very comfortable. I use these for recording in a home studio and practicing guitar connected to Garageband and a laptop. I can find no fault in these. LOVE 'EM!
Summary: At the time (6 years ago) I could not afford a good set of studio monitors for desktop recording, so I opted for these. It was a very wise choice. These things are a real workhorse and still sound wonderful today with no problems. I prefer them now to the monitors I finally bought. $99 is a good deal, it's what I paid back then.
Summary: I'll keep this very short. They are very smooth sounding. Treble toned down so not so good for rock but have a magic about them that makes them better than mark 2. I use them with a '89/'90 Marantz PM50 integrated. Very powerful amp with a great headphone out. Don't need to go past ten o;clock even with these 600 ohm babies. Anyway, great vintage headphones that are well made and worth a go at the right price.
Excerpt: One of my personal favourites, never had more fun playing games that need that extra bass in the background music and sound effects. 60 or more pounds for a head set might be pricey but is worth it, the AKG K 141 MK 2 is amazingly comfortable and has never given me soar ears. Friends also use this set to create and mix music, they say this head set is one of the few that actually give them perfect sound quality.
Summary: These are very impressive cans out the box. Nicely balanced with a neutral to very slightly warmer sound. Best I can describe it is rich and full bodied. They have so far sounded great with anything I play, not like the Grado SR80 which can sound fatiguing with some or even any music after a while. These are not as 'in your face' as the Grado SR80.
Summary: Having got them out of the box I first compared them on my mobile phone with the AKG K420's i have and at first was disappointed as they were much quieter than the 420's even with a headphone amp. I then tried them in my laptop with the headphone amp and they were pretty good. After 15 minutes or so I kept noticing that I had to reduce the volume on the laptop as they were getting louder. I assume that these need to "run in".
Summary: Just received my headphones in very short time (3 days from placing order) Sound quality is superb, I already had the old version of this new model for fifteen years but they were not suitable for the new LCD TV I have just bought because of the high impedance (600 Ohms). These are almost identical in appearance (silver not gold finish)and same great sound. Three metre lead is good for sitting in my armchair in comfort watching my DVD's.
Pros: Использую эти наушники с 2006 года в домашней студии. В основном используются при записи(В роли звукорежиссера) иногда и при сведения.(Made in Austria). Звук правдоподобный, чистый,у меня они играют только через пред.усилитель для наушников. Подключать их к плеерам, либо к компьютерам на дешевые звуковые карты, означает просто потратить деньги в пустую. По поводу не убиваемые: 100% поддерживаю всех, падали не однократно- еще живут, и радуют меня своим звуком(Для своей...
